We had a chance to go by the beach when we were on the cruise. We rented a small cab to see the City. The beach is in a so-so neighborhood but was rather safe. There is a nice café on the beach which we didn't eat in.

It is a nice beach - but it is pretty much "in" Puerto Plata. Beaches to the east near Doradas are nicer and cleaner. There is more to do and see in Long Beach however. Lots of nice bars and places to enjoy the views. Felt very safe (during the day)

I always visited Long Beach in Puerto Plata since 2009, but the beach was just plain beautiful, lacked activity and better services. I visited a few days ago and noticed how the Carnival cruise passengers have motivated locals to invest in better service and infrastructure. Security now is far better, more agents in place. Places like Carihuela - which has... More
